Russia has no evidence of Iran nuclear bomb-Putin

MOSCOW, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Russia has no evidence that Iran is trying to build a nuclear weapon, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

“We have no information that Iran is working on the creation of a nuclear weapon,” Putin said when asked by a reporter if Iran was close to making an atomic bomb.

When asked if Russia would support international sanctions against the Islamic Republic, Putin declined to answer. (Reporting by Gleb Bryanski, writing by Guy Faulconbridge, editing by Dmitry Solovyov) ((guy.faulconbridge@reuters.com, +7 495 775 12 42))
